Natural remedies for treating your cat’s ear mites

Natural remedies for treating your cat’s ear mitesAs we’ve seen in another article, cat ear mites are rather difficult to treat and cat owners find themselves forced to resort to a veterinarian. Just remember, a clear sign of an ear mites infestation is the presence of a dark secretion inside the ear of your cat, particularly if it’s in the shape of thick coffee grind. Although establishing a diagnosis is indeed the work of a vet, for those of you who don’t want to spend money on consultations, we’ve put together a list of natural remedies.

The tips we’re recommending can also be used in the case of other ear infections. However, it is your responsibility to realize if the following treatments have results or not.

1. Olive oil and Vitamin E. Each of these two substances has its role. The olive oil cleans the inside of the ear and vitamin E is used for the nourishment of the skin. You can use one tablespoon of olive oil and a capsule of vitamin E. Use a syringe to introduce the solution inside your cat’s ear. However, do think about the fact that 2 to 3 drops are more than enough, because the auricular environment is not designed to tolerate liquids for a too long period of time.

2. Garlic and olive oil. Most people that are interested in natural products already know the benefits of using garlic. This amazing plant that is frequently used in food has antibacterial properties and can be used to kill parasites. Just remember, the duration of a treatment is a minimum of 7 days. Grate some garlic and mix it with a teaspoon of olive oil and introduce it inside the ear. Thoroughly massage the base of the ear with a finger so you are sure a couple of drops have entered the ear canal.

3. Last, but not least, you can try with Aloe Vera and Calendula. Calendula is the latin name for marigold, a plant that’s widely known for its antibacterial properties. A big plus to using marigold is the fact that it also intervenes in the natural process of skin healing. Aloe Vera is quite an amazing plant that you can use for treating cat ear mites. We recommend you purchase 2 oils, one with Aloe Vera and the other with Calendula. You have to mix them together and pour 2 to 3 drops inside the ear of the cat. However, the main disadvantage to choosing this type of natural treatment is you have to do it for 21 consecutive days.

One important thing to consider in choosing this holistic approach is you have to get rid of those residues before applying any treatment. Create a ritual for every day of the treatment. Clean the inside of the affected ear and then apply the solution.
Good luck in treating your cat’s ear mites!
